Mumbai: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will address a party rally here on March 17, first time after he was voted to power for the third successive time in the Assembly elections held last year.

The rally, where party president Rajnath Singh will also be present, will be held at Somaiya ground at Sion in Central Mumbai, party sources said today.

According to sources, the BJP is keen to use Modi's charisma to woo the youth and middle class in Mumbai which has a sizable Gujarati population, and also win over other sections of the society.
